Frances Arnold is an Artist and Creative Producer based in Northumberland, UK.

Minimalism meets colour in her unique limited edition prints.

In each print, she combines a lifetime of precise, architecture-inspired drawings in pen and pencil with a passion for the colourful and textured world of ink, paper and print.

Frances creates minimalist, geometric prints inspired by her daily movement between vast rural landscapes and contained urban architecture. She combines her love of drawing with the physicality of printmaking to convey a hand-drawn, textured and pastel-like quality to her screenprints. Frances’ subtle use of embossing to accentuate voids and colours playfully alters our perception of light, materials and space.

Frances graduated from Newcastle University with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art in 2009 and has since produced collaborative, socially engaged projects with artists and communities in the North of England whilst exhibiting her reductive drawings & prints in galleries and site-specific contexts
